A single large volume of light composed of a regular modular mesh, surrounded by the greenery and water channels of the Lambretta Park and flanked by the Crystal Palace, restored in its supporting structures and converted into a garden of winter, called "Green Biodiversity Factory". It is the winning project of the "Magnificent Factory" international competition, signed by an Italian-Spanish design team led by the architect Massimo Giuliani. "It's going to be a new cultural hub for the city," says Mayor.


Through a pedestrian path, from via Caduti di Marcinelle or by road from via Rubattino, you arrive at the square of the water tower, a precious testimony of the past of the former Innocenti area, which will be enhanced and used as a support for the sign of the Magnificent Factory, characterizing the entrance. The "Magnificent Factory" will host artistic laboratories, rehearsal rooms, tailors and warehouses, multifunctional and refreshment rooms. The envelope uses recycled solid polycarbonate, and the roof will have a photovoltaic system of 3600 kW, making the building a Zero energy building, as well as an open-cycle geothermal system to contribute to the purification of groundwater. At the head of the Magnificent Factory is the "Space of Dreams", a large space that will guarantee maximum flexibility for daily use as well as for hosting exhibitions, workshops, courses, major events. Inside, at a height of 8 meters, the Ring develops an elevated public path for visitors, an opportunity for everyone to discover the activities from behind the scenes, without interrupting or interfering in any way.







As part of the same concept, an elevated wooden structure, called Piazza Flottante, will also characterize the nearby Crystal Palace, which will be able to host events and celebrations related to the cultural programming of the Municipality as well as entities and associations, and which will allow visitors to discover from the winter garden in which the palace will be transformed is high. Its two heads, declared of cultural interest as evidence of industrial archeology, as well as the entire structure, will be recovered, and a network of tree-lined paths will connect them to the factory.

The Lambretta Park develops all around and will double its extension reaching almost 100,000 sqm: a landscape of green meadows with even elevated paths that flank the banks of the canals, orchards, rows on the avenues and tree patches and with the Water Gardens, natural phytodepuration meadows that can also offer educational experiences. The first phase of the works, whose total costs are estimated at 120 million euros, will concern the extension of the Park, which is expected to start in 2024.

Awesome project! Viva Italia. I want to choose this"Magnificent Factory" project for homework. I'm trying to find example projects encountered in architecture school. Seeing examples can be interesting and inspiring to students. Also, students can find architecture assignment help at this portal-studyessay.org.
